This is such a great recipe! It gives you all the flavors of peach cobbler that you enjoy and it’s beyond easy to put together. Using basic pantry staples means you don’t have to stress if peaches aren’t ripe yet, and you can decide on the spur of the moment to whip this up.
I love making peach cobbler at any time of the year, and because you use canned peaches you can serve it all year long. A bonus is that you don’t even need to mix up the cake mix before adding it to the peaches—can you believe it? You add the peach juice from the peach slices to make sure that the cake bakes up nice and moist. It’s a little bit like a dump cake!
And, no need to slice up the fruit because it’s been done for you already. This makes prep time a breeze and the results are so good no would ever guess it’s from a mix. Let me show you how to make this peach cobbler today!
Ingredients for Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix
See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.
- Yellow cake mix – Choose your preferred brand of cake mix.
- Ground cinnamon
- Salted butter
- Sliced peaches – Use canned peaches.
- Whipped cream – You can use store-bought or homemade whipped cream.
- Use white cake mix. A box of white cake mix is also great in this recipe! Just choose your favorite brand and use it in place of the yellow cake mix in the recipe.
- Try different fruit. Use 2 cans of sliced pears in place of the peaches to make a pear cobbler.
- Use a fruit filling mix. Use cans of fruit pie filling mix, like cherry pie filling, instead of the canned peaches. Apple pie filling works too!
- Serve with ice cream. Whipped cream is so good with this recipe, but when you serve peach cobbler warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream it takes it over the top!
How to Make Peach Cobbler with Cake Mix
- Preheat oven: You’ll need to set the oven temperature to 350℉. Have a 9×13 inch baking pan ready. (Don’t have a 9×13 pan? Read this: Baking Dish and Casserole Conversion Guide)
- Pour the canned peaches into the baking pan: Pour the peaches into the 9×13 baking dish, including the peach juice. Spread the peaches in the bottom of the pan so that they are somewhat evenly distributed.
- Sprinkle the cake mix and cinnamon over the peaches: Sprinkle the dry cake mix evenly over the peaches in the baking dish. Then sprinkle the cinnamon evenly over the cake mix.
- Add the melted butter: Pour the butter over the cake mix, distributing it evenly across the top of the pan.
- Bake the cobbler: Place the pan in the oven and bake the cobbler for about 25 minutes, until the top of the cobbler is golden brown in color and it bubbles around the edges.
- Serve: Scoop onto plates and top with whipped cream then enjoy!
You do not want to mix the ingredients in the pan. However, if you see a large dry spot of cake mix, tap it with a fork so it sinks into the peach liquid and becomes moist.
How to Store
Store the cobbler in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can eat it cold from the fridge or gently reheat in the oven or microwave.
This cobbler is absolutely delicious topped with a generous spoonful of whipped cream. Vanilla ice cream also goes really well with slices of cobbler.
Cobbler is usually topped with batter or biscuits in lieu of crust. Cobbler’s name comes from its sometimes cobbled texture, which is a result of spooning or dropping the topping over the fruit rather than distributing it equally so that the filling peeks through.
Cobblers have a fruit bottom and are generally topped with a sweet biscuit dough, but can also have a more cake-like consistency as well.
You can use any kind of fruit for cobbler! Try fresh, frozen, or canned fruit to make fruit cobbler.
